Bundle of Baby

It's time for the monthly designers' Creative Challenge from My Favorite Things and this month's challenge was to create a baby themed project. Be sure to head over to Kim's blog for a list of all participating designers.

Soft colours are the first thing that come to mind when I think of anything baby related, so first I found the patterned papers I wanted to use, My Mind's Eye Howdy Doody. Oooh, I just realized it has "doody" in the name...so perfect for babies...eeks! LOL!

Once I found the patterned papers, then I looked for the stamp set I wanted to use and landed on à la mode - Bundle of Baby. The layout is MTMEPPS47, slightly modified to fit my vision.

The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and I paper pieced her pretty tunic top, along with the stripe on the rattle. The rest is coloured with copic markers. I used one of the tabs from the mini tabs Die-namics for the sentiment and cut out a white strip using the little open scallop strip Die-namics for along the bottom of the striped piece.

I think my favourite part is the little baby shaped accents. The patterned paper circles were punched out with a 1 1/8" circle punch. The baby shapes were cut out using the notched tag Die-namics, cut from puff cloud white felt. But I wanted to pop them on foam dots for dimension in addition to the texture, so I cut the same three shapes from white card stock then just glued the felt to the card stock for a more rigid shape.

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from the set and lined up the same three shapes along the bottom, cut from fossil card stock.


Here are the Die-namics I used:
